Product Description

Join the President of India on this journey to understand the depths of the world’s largest democracy
In this book, the honourable President of India Dr. Pranab Mukherjee presents a sharp edged account of the very strong political and economic decisions that have shaped the future of modern India. He starts from the decisions of 1980s which had a huge impact on today’s economy. He narrates the incident of Sanjay Gandhi’s death under unexpected circumstances followed by the assassination of Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. ‘The reluctant politician’ Rajiv Gandhi becomes the Prime Minister of India. Dr. Mukherjee was a witness to the events that followed in 1980s and 1990s, a period that he refers to as one of the most turbulent times of India's post-independence history.
